BREAKING: Senate talks on avoiding emergency declaration showdown collapse
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Senate Republicans say talks to find a way to stop a House-passed resolution disapproving of President Trump’s emergency declaration over the southern border are collapsing amid Republican divisions over what some see as a breach of separation of powers.
Senate Republicans said Wednesday afternoon that Trump will not support a proposal sponsored by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) to reform the National Emergencies Act of 1976 and require Congress to approve future emergency declarations after 30 days.
The article goes on to state the following:
“It’s my understanding the president won’t support it,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), a member of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) leadership team, after meeting with colleagues at lunch to discuss the state of the talks.
The president told Senate Republicans he would not agree to curtail his powers in order to stem defections on the disapproval vote https://t.co/UaCHXW7Qa5
